So I've been away for a while but I am back and there will be a lot of blog posts in the upcoming days and weeks mainly focusing on my film "Osvaldo's."
For those of you that don't know, "Osvaldo's" is my NYU thesis film and is a 20 minute drama focusing on the Dominguez family's challenging journey to discover their new collective identity after the matriarch has passed away. It stars Lemon Andersen, Gina Rodriguez, Maria Acosta, Jeff Lima and Dominic Colon.
"Osvaldo's" will be making its WORLD PREMIERE AT THE AMERICAN BLACK FILM FESTIVAL where it will be competing with four other fantastic short films in the HBO/ABFF Short Film Competition for the grand prize of $20,000 and the adulation of the entire planet Earth. I am really excited that the film will be making its premiere at such a prestigious and exciting event. The festival will be held in Miami June 24-27th. Please check out their website for all screening and ticket information - www.abff.com. You can also click the link at any time in my links section. If you're going to be in Miami please come through or if you're anywhere else and want to bug out on the beach and then see my fresh, dope, amazing film then let me know.
The film is also an official selection of the HBO Latino Film Festival which will be in New York City at the end of July. When I have more info on that I will post in on here.
Again, please come back regularly to the blog for all updates and info for the film. I will be doing a running diary kind of thing when I get down to ABFF so for those of you who won't be there you can live vicariously through me as I love vicariously through myself. I will also be uploading pictures from the set and all the events so check for those as well.
I'm really excited for the film and the opportunity to share it with all of you. We'll be talking again soon.
